When you deliver a piece of furniture, do you also deliver a Use and Care Guide? What about a warranty? Check out my Use and Care guide here, and let me know what you think! I’d also like your thoughts on warranties.
I arrived at lowes like any other today. A very small list. Some kreg screws and a 4×8 sheet of 1/4” birch ply for drawer bottoms. After browsing the tool isles and getting my screws I got my sheet and realized I had my car not truck and that I was going to have to have the sheet cut down to 4 2×4 sheets.All good right? Nope.I pressed the button on the wall near the panel saw and heard the command go off on the loudspeaker that something needed to be cut.After waiting almost 1...
I was just thinking that it’s pretty easy to slam a company when they screw up, but when they get it right it often goes unmentioned. Woodcraft, here’s to you. In case you don’t get to the end of this post, the moral of the story is that Woodcraft (online, not local) totally came through for me. I’ve ordered a few things from Woodcraft, and never had a problem. There aren’t any woodworking stores within two hours of where I live (unless you count the BORG...

I got some great news this week! Finally got my income tax refund back and got the go ahead to spend it on new toys/tools! I’ve been researching and and contemplating and decided to finally take the plunge into turning. I want to say thanks to everybody who takes the time to post reviews. That has really been a great help in deciding not only what wouldn’t be worth the money but what might be a good fit for my budget and needs. Anyway, Staurday I am going first to HF and gettin...

Hello LJs, As some of you know, on occassion, I tend to drift off topic and do a bit of creative writing. Today was such a day. There is a bit of back story here. My favorite blog in the entire world is entitled ‘Slummy Single Mummy’, and it one of a billion mommy blogs on the internet. I am single, male, 43, no children. I am not her demographic. Every once in a while I stumble across a gem of a writer, and Jo is such a find. She has a writing style that is incredibly...
Me Bad! Yes I was delinquent in my maintenance, Interesting thing about this old DP the taper that holds the Jacobs Chuck measures with zero runout. The gauge doesn’t even wiggle when the taper is rotated. Run out on the chuck is plus or minus 5 thousandths. A fair amount when you are trying to drill real accurate holes. Celebrating the holiday weekend with friends so corrective measures will be delayed till next week. Hope y’all enjoy too!
Hey LJ’s. So I have the upholstery of the sofa frame complete. The only thing left as far as upholstery, is the seat cushion and pillows!! My next step is making the legs. This is where I need some advice from you guys. I was planning on making some legs that are really big and bulky, probably either black or dark shade of brown (like walnut), but I was wondering what you guys think? I was also thinking about only doing 1 long seat cushion. I kind of like the fact of not having a...
